Every single woman I know has experienced sexism in the workplace.
“For a woman, you’re a great negotiator.”
“Have you been working out more?”
“She’s the office mom.”
“It was just a joke.”

Overt, subtle, intentional or otherwise; at some point or another, we’ve all been there.
Why do some men still struggle to see their female colleagues as strong, capable and professionally equal? What are some of the invisible workplace challenges we face as women? As men and women, how do we create a fair working environment for all?
